    Jay's shirts are 100% my favorite. They fit me perfectly. I'm gonna order some more as soon as you get some new designs, Jay [​IMG] For reference, here I am wearing a size Small, I'm 6' tall, 160 lbs: [​IMG] My favorite part about the shirts is how long they are. Finally shirts that are tight enough in the chest, but long enough to not make me look like a little girl [​IMG] ps that's a Marimekko shower curtain

    I've got the Bespoke shirt and love it. It is probably the softest Tshirt I own, so comfortable!

    I'm really lookin forward to seeing new designs so I can purchase some more. Glad to hear SF members still get the $30 price! [​IMG]

    4. I'm looking forward to posting new work in the next few weeks. The hardest thing about this gig is not being able to continually create new stuff. The creative process take time (especially the way I do it) and it has had to take a back seat to filling orders. I hope you guys find the next round of stuff as interesting as this first batch. I can assure you that it will be like nothing else on the market. That doesn't mean I'll be able to sell it.....but it does mean I can go to sleep at night with a smile on my face.

    Thanks again for everything.....you guys are the best.

    Jay


    I can't wait to see them. Are you still going to be offering your old lineup? There are some that I want now, but I'll hold off and see what the new stuff is if I can do both.

    Wait, you smell that?
    Just curious,

    Can you order the T shirts in any of the colors in "Colorways" on the website, or is a specific T only made in the color as the T is depicted on the website?

    Thanks! I'll be dropping an order soon.

    Jay has done different colorways. For example, at both Uncle Otis (TO) and Market, you'll find the "Bespoke" in non standard colorways.

    Hey Minya, that's a small? Wierd. We are about the same height and I weigh a little less, but the medium fits me the same across my chest and shoulders, and is just a little drappier through the torso.

    Yeah, I don't get it. My Spruce classic fit hoodie in Small fits me in a very similar manner.

    Normally I'm a medium in everything, but it seems I can pull off a small from time to time.

    It is wierd. You've seen pics of me in a medium Spruce hoodie, and while not skin tight, it is reasonably fitted.

    I'm about 6'0 tall, and like 180 pounds, wearing a medium.

    Jay, expect an order sometime in the next week or so :p

    I'd buy a bunch of these if they're ever made in an x-small.

    Looking real cool.

    But it is really wierd. I wear a medium too, and my shirts fit pretty much like yours, except that I have slightly more room in the shoulder. Chest fits exactly the same. And while you are an inch taller, I weigh a good 25 lbs less than you do... And most of my mass is in my legs... Not wearing one of his shirts now, but I'll post a picture of myself in one later (a medium, of course,) and you'll see what I mean.

    I doubt I'll ever retire my designs. Because I make them myself...essentially to order, it isn't a big hassle to make them. Places that have their shirts printed, say in Portugal, really have no choice but to retire designs. It is too costly to do short runs, on short notice, in a foreign country. I hope to have 6-8 new designs to show by June. I should also have a womens line with it's own unique graphics. You guys will be the first to know.

    If it said "dissolve", I would wear that shirt.
